  • I am 22 weeks with my second and when you are just this far along, you usually dont feel very hard movements. In about a month or so you will. ^_^ I always like feeling the movement too, so reassuring.

  • make sure you tell your doctor. they had me do a stress test where they strapped me to a machine which recorded every time the baby kicked and i also had to press a button every time the baby kicked. The obgyn knows how much a baby should be moving and kicking. If you don't feel right about something, trust your instinct and go to the doctor.

  • I had the same issue with my daughter, turned out my placenta was anterior (in front) muffling her movements. I was so relieved to hear it, I thought she had some other issue.
